The Lost Supper

January 5th, 2010 - 3 Comments

The Season 6 ‘group photo’ has been set up in a parody of the ‘The Last Supper’. There were two versions released, one with the characters in poses mimicking the original (below), and a second (link below first image) with all the characters just looking towards the camera (not as interesting but still cool).

If you’re curious about what clues may (or may not) be hidden in the way the image has been constructed then you should definitely have a read through this post on docarzt.com. Its a pretty comprehensive write-up comparing the Lost version to the famous painting, it covers everything from the placement and position of certain characters to what they are wearing, who they are looking at, the props placed around or near them. There are also some comparisons to similar ‘Last Supper’-themed promo photos used for other TV shows in the past. After all this is Lost, and as we seen in the past they rerely produce something like this without there being some sort of hidden meaning.

Promo Postcards

January 1st, 2009 - No Comments

Happy new year everyone, it has been a couple of weeks since I’ve posted anything here, so this is just to hold you over while I try and finish a couple of posts (on the Pierre Chang video and the latest promos) I’ve got in the works. Hopefully I can get them out in the next week or so.

These postcards popped up on the ABC website a bit over a week ago, not sure if they reveal anything of great interest, I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions. It is worth noting that “Ajira Airways” is shown in a couple of them. There has also been some new info around Ajira popup in the past couple of days which I’d like to find time to write up before the premiere.


More Season 5 Promos

December 7th, 2008 - No Comments

Over the past couple of weeks there have been several shorter promos for season 5 each of which included a little bit of new footage which we had not seen previously. So what new snipits have been uncovered, keep reading to find out.

First Promo (click to view)

While its not a new shot, just one I hadn’t screencapped in the previous promos, we again see Charlotte with her nose bleeding, possibly related to why she’s no longer listed as one of the primary cast. We also see Desmond telling Penny that everyone of the island is in danger. We hear (but don’t see) Jack saying that they need to protect the people that they left behind, and Hurley saying “people are trying to kill us”. Sayid and Hurley arrive at an apartment building in the same 4WD seen in the last promo. Alpert is telling Locke that “the only way to save the island is to get your people back here”. Desmond running off, with Penny asking his where he’s going. And lastly another look at the explosion that looks like its going to wipe out a couple of the background losties.

Second Promo (click to view)

Nothing too much in this next promo, just another couple of shots of Locke falling.

Third Promo (click to view)

A couple of very interesting bits in this third promo. We hear Dan say “I know what’s happening”, right before we see Ethan emerge from the bushes pointing a gun at Locke. There someones clock that flips over to 8:15, and a mystery baby being held by someone who may be wearing Dharma clothes. There is also another angle of Locke’s fall. Sawyer screaming “run” (probably as the flaming arrows start falling from the sky).

We get a slightly extended view of the explosion we’ve already seen in the other promos. We then see Sawyer again trying to get in a door… looks a little like the external door to the Swan hatch, but that can’t be possible, right? The last shot is of Juliet and Sawyer who are shielding their eyes from possibly another “discharge”. Initially I thought this might have just been the footage of them on the beach from when Ben moved the island, but looking at the background it definitely seems to be night time (which it wasn’t when the island was moved.)

Season 5 Cast Promo Photo

Season 5 Promo Photo

So I had planned to post about four of the most recent (short) Lost promos which have a few small bits and pieces that weren’t in the longer promos that we’ve already seen. I’ve taken the sceen-caps, but I don’t really feel like writing about them tonight, so I’ll save that and do it sometime over the weekend (I promise).

To hold you over here is a full cast promo shot, and even though Rebecca Mader (Charlotte) doesn’t appear to be part of the “permanent” cast for next season she is still in the photo.

UPDATE: Just saw this mentioned briefly on another site, take a close look at Faraday’s left foot…or the lack there of. Don’t believe me? I’ll post a close up later. It definitely looks like its been “photoshopped” though as the leg of his pants is in front of the tree branch which itself is about a metre in front of Faraday. How odd… maybe that why ABC has been asking sites to take down the high res version…

Aside from the discussion of several promos, I’m also planning to write about the 2-min s5e01 promo that was released a couple of days ago (early access was given to those participating in “Dharma Special Access”), and I’m also going to get back to analysing the Marvin Candle/Pierre Chang comic-con video.

Season 5

A closer look at the second Season 5 Lost promo

November 23rd, 2008 - 4 Comments

The second full length promo for season 5 was released a couple of days ago during Grey’s Anatomy, and a little alter it was also made available online. The promo is a joint venture of sorts between “The Fray” and ABC, and is being used to promote both Lost and The Fray’s new single “You found me”. While some of the scenes shown were also in the first promo, there is still a bunch of new stuff to go over. The full video is attached so you can check it out at your leisure.

First of the ‘new’ bits is Hurley sitting at a table, probably in the house that we’ve already seen in his flash forwards. There is a quick shot of Kate holding Aaron. We get a close up of Locke’s eye, which zooms out to show him flat on his back (not sure if this is new or not). We get another angle of Faraday’s confrontation with the person in the hazmat suit, this time more from the perspective of the person in the suit.

We see Sayid and Jack having a fight, and Sayid appears to have a n oxygen mask around his neck, so this could possible take place after the scene of Hurley helping Sayid out from the last promo, which itself is possibly connect to some of the other shots in this promo. After a few flashes of Desmond (who wasn’t in the first promo), we see a couple of the losties still on the island (is it Scott or Steve?), and Miles notices a bomb which appears to be attached to a trip wire (the type of traps that Rousseau used), theres and explosion and Miles dives away. Could this be the end of Scott/Steve (which ever one isn’t dead). Just before the explosion there is also the first flash of the “Ajira Airways” logo on the screen.

Season 5 Promo 2

November 6th, 2008 - No Comments

This one was first aired last night during the election coverage, it’s pretty brief. I don’t think it shows anything new, apart from possibly confirming that its Locke holding the compass. The end shot of the Lost logo above the island is also different to that used on previous promos, not sure if that means anything much though… Click here.

Season 5

Screenshots and Theories from the Season 5 Promo

October 30th, 2008 - 6 Comments

I’m trying really hard to make sure I don’t read any spoilers about season 5. Last year while waiting for season 4 to begin it got the better of me and I thought I’d just read a few bits. One of those ‘bits’ was who the Oceanic Six were, although the spoilers I read said that Jin was one of the six, another ‘bit’ was that Aaron was off the island and being cared for by Kate who was treating him as her own. Both were things that I’d rather have found out by just watching.

So since all we’ve got so far is the 40 seconds or so from the second half of the season 5 promo, I’m going to start theorising. Why? Because I can. Below are a selection of the more interesting shots from the promo, click each to view them full-size. Also I’d say that most of these are from the first couple of episodes since they’ve only shot the first half a dozen or so.

First shot is the Dharma logo that flashes up a couple of time around the middle of the promo. Then there’s Locke on the ground with somebody pointing a gun at him. Locke certainly looks surprised, not sure who its is though, perhaps one of the Others, or perhaps someone else, we don’t know “when” the island is. Juliet looks like she’s discovered a hatch very similar to the Swan hatch that Locke and Boone found way back when. Since the Swan blew up, its probably not it, but another station. Or again it could be a case of “when” not “where”.

Dan is in a cave, and he’s got a Dharma safety hat on. Could he possibly be underneath the Orchid station where the “donkey wheel” is/was. Locke, it either night or he’s inside, maybe being held captive by whoever was pointing that gun at him. Alpert with a flaming torch, I hope we find out some more about Alpert and his apparent immortality. Someone with a compass, Locke had a compass at one point so it could be him, trying to find Jacob maybe. Hurley with a gun.

Looks like Hurley and Sayid pay someone a visit. Sayid kicks ass, Hurley cheers him on. My (probably way off the mark) theory is that they’ve gone to get Des. Why? Continue reading Screenshots and Theories from the Season 5 Promo →

Season 5

Season 5 Promo

October 23rd, 2008 - 1 Comment

Update: The promo has now been posted on ABC.com so I’ve updated the video to the full quality version. Much nicer. Might even screen-cap some of the interesting bits later if I’ve got time.

It may still be about 3 months away but we’ve now had our first peak at season 5 of Lost. The first half is your typical overall summary of what has happened so far sort of thing, and then the second half contains some (very, very brief) snippets from season 5.

Around half way, during the scene with Jack and Ben, you might have noticed the screen flashes a couple of times. If you pause it (quite hard to do with the flash video) its actually a Dharma Initiative logo on the screen. This is what is shown.

So what does it show from season 5? It looks like Juliet discovers the swan station, or perhaps uncovers another Dharma station. Sayid mentions a safe house, Hurley has a gun, Sayid is beating some dude up, and then Hurley is helping Sayid out, he says they “never should have left that island”. Sun appears to be locked in an interview room of some description. Kates packing her bags…and her gun, and she tells Aaron that they are going on vacation. Jack says that everyone they left behind would die too if he didn’t go back. Ben says “thank God for second chances”.
